Carla Johnson was a medical professional working full-time. She was happily married, and was living comfortably until she was suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer. She made a desperate call to the Volunteer Attorney Program as Legal Aid could not assist her. She was now unable to work, her disability had been denied, her medical costs had risen to over $80,000, and her marriage was in shambles. She was living on the couch of a friend, and her husband filed for divorce. She could not afford an attorney to help her with any of her problems.
The Volunteer Attorney Program was able to provide pro bono attorneys to help her with her disability claim, debts, and divorce. After a few months, Carla had her own apartment, she succeeded in her disability appeal, and had a nearly complete divorce from her husband. Finally Carla was able to take care of herself and her breast cancer is now in remission.
